IPL 2018: RR and DD will be looking to win after losing their opening match

RR, DD will also look to register a victory after their loss against Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad

New Delhi: Match 6 of VIVO IPL 2018 against the Delhi Daredevils will be a special occasion for the Royals, not only because it will be their first home game of the season, but also because it will be the team’s return to their fortress in a long time.

RR, DD will also look to register a victory after their loss against Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The Delhi Daredevils come into this match after being blown away by KXIP’s KL Rahul in their season opener. DD posted 166-7 a respectable total on most occasions, but were caught off guard as Rahul got stuck into their bowlers and set a new mark for the fastest half-century in the IPL.

Delhi Daredevils on the other hand has a fairly balanced team on paper. With the likes of Colin Munro, Gautam Gambhir, Glenn Maxwell, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer, their strength is definitely in their deep batting line-up.

Delhi Daredevils holds a slight edge over Royals in this fixture because of their deep batting line-up. In middle-order with hard-hitting Australian batsman joining the squad.

RR will be served well if he can bat in fifth gear throughout, for the team has depth in batting and can afford their batsmen to play aggressively. Ben Stokes, the most-expensive signing at the IPL Player 2018, hasn’t been in the best of batting forms recently, but RR will hope he can start hitting a few balls out of the park soon.

Royals attack had plenty of variety, that did not translate to success on the pitch; their bowlers managed to pick up only a solitary wicket in the match against SRH.

Ajinkya Rahane has scored more runs against the Delhi Daredevils than against any other IPL opponent; in 15 matches against DD, Rahane has an aggregate of 632 runs which includes nine innings of 40 or more at an average of 63.20.
